is to stay in doors, and unfortunately there is no invisible wall to keep the problem in china, and then free wifi for everyone in the country, rich or poor city or farm, sounds fantastic, unless of course you are a wireless industry executive, and then it doesn't sound so good afternoon. it is "the war room" on a monday night. we're just getting started. (vo) later tonight current tv is the place for compelling true stories. >> jack, how old are you? >> nine. >> this is what 27 tons of marijuana looks like. (vo) with award winning documentaries that take you inside the headlines, way inside. (vo) from the underworld, to the world of privilege. >> everyone in michael jackson's life was out to use him. (vo) no one brings you more documentaries that are real, gripping, current. >> jennifer: karl rove likes to win elections, so to do so, he needs two things money and candidates that actually appeal to voters. we know rove can raise the money according to the center for responsible politics his super pac and the nonprofit one, they spent $175 million during the 2012
's people. other nations including china north korea's only ally, as issued statement opposing north korea's sanctions actions. here with me is gordon chang he wrote it just for today. welcome to "the war room." >> thank you so much. >> michael: obviously this is big news on a day we have the speech coming up tonight. but what is the significance of this test in a global way. >> north korea has crossed two technical thresh olds. there was the test of the three- three-stage missiles very successful. put a satellite in orbit which means with a few adjustments it could land anywhere. then we have this powerful explosion today. if it was a miniature device as the north koreans said, that's even more impressive. probably between five years maybe three, north korea could put a dent anywhere it wants to on the face of the earth. >> michael: it's interesting too, because kim jung-un. he was a power in 2011. a lot of people saw that he had a western education educated in switzerland, that he would be more reasonable about nuclear arms and arsenal. who is he flexing for? is he flexing for his own c
on this group. it is one of 20 groups we trace back to china origins amongst other groups that we follow. but in the report, we lay out you know, 60 pages of detailed findings. it is very data thick and analysis thick over 3,000 digital indicators to help detect and find the threats. in the report, we build up the case for why we believe that this is traced back to the pla the people's liberation army inside of china in particular inside of their third department second bureau which is a unit we call -- a unit that is called 61398. >> bill: in addition to the "new york times," who else were they targeting? >> they've targeted a lot. we found -- again we've been investigating this for six years. along with other victim -- other attacks. but with this group in particular they've compromised over 141 victims over six years that we had visibility into. what's really interesting is it spanned over 20 different industries. we had victims from public affairs to construction, aerospace education legal engineering, electronics i.t., the list goes on and on. >> bill: big names right? i've seen blo
to put in a lot of walls. no one is going to send their house off to china to get insulated. that's work to be done here by millions of american workers if we're serious about this. >> john: what lesson do you think president obama learned from the first term about enacting any kind of climate change rules? >> i think he learned there was no point in trying to persuade the republicans to go along because they're not going to. their party has been more or less bought by the same forces that more or less cowed the democratic party. he's going to have to rally his party to do some things. more importantly he'll have to help rally the activist movement that is really coming alive around america. this is all of a sudden a really big push. right now as of yesterday almost out of nowhere we have 252 college campuses with active fossil fuel di veestive movements. the nation last week said this was the largest student movement in the last few decades. we have a huge rally coming to washington on sunday. we've got a movement that wasn't there before. if the president takes advantage of it, if he p
that fox con is the apple computer parts plant in china what do you think of the fact that they announced that they are going to allow workers to unionize? >> i think it's a really positive step in the right direction. i hope it's legitimate. we see tremendous abuse of workers in ail different parts of the world. we're involved in a campaign in mexico, where tremendous abuse of worker, and they do wire harness work in deplorable conditions. it's very much like the fox con story. anywhere that global public pressure can convince companies that they should give workers the right to organize and the right to collective bargaining that is very very positive. >> jennifer: and will that convince countries they should be more responsive to union workers, like in china? >> well, you know, we work throughout the world. we're involved in some campaigns in india right now, where we're supporting worker's rights to organize. so we want to see a global middle class we want to see every country respect laborers rights, and yes, we think it is extremely impo
your strategy boneheaded. he said blocking the pipeline will make canada send the oil to china and not really cut down on demand. what's your response? because i was under the impression most of the oil was going to go to china and india to begin with. >> his response hurt my feelings. >> john: are you okay with that? >> yeah. my mom isn't though. joes no nocera has been a proponent all along. i'm sure he's a nice gentleman. i've met him before. the key here is he argued that we need to be cutting demand which we've done. if he had done the research, he would know we soon saved 3 million barrels a day. we'll soon save another 400,000 barrels a day by regulating heavy duty trucks. so we're starting to ween ourselves off of oil in the u.s. and pipelines will not be built to china. they're already stalled up in british columbia. so the key is -- we gotta get real here. if we want to fight climate change and stop the droughts and wildfires and super storms, we can't pretend everything's okay and keep building out the dirty energy sources. we've gotta transition to clean energy and
in that space that hasn't already been done, and is this an opportunity for us to to engage china? >> well, it's a tough opportunity. north korea i think we have to keep a couple of things in mind. we obviously need to respond in some way. they can't be allowed to get away with this. they didn't kill anybody but nuclear tests are not acceptable in the modern world. the idea that i'm trying to think there is whether any additional sanctions that we try to impose on them should be temporary on the condition that they not test again. the idea being that you would like kim jung-un this new 30-year-old leader to get a chance to establish himself. maybe he needed to allow the nuclear test to please the hard linessers. maybe he felt inexperienced to quickly take on the hard liners. i'm not necessarily saying that he's a reformer but we want to allow that possibility down the road. a punishment that is firm but temporary may be the way to break out of this logjam, and china may go along with that more readily than slapping on sanctions in duration. but anything is going to be a long shot with north ko
like china goes all in on clean energy, so must we. in the meantime, the natural gas boom has led to cleaner power and greater energy and independence. we need to encourage that. that's where my administration will keep cutting red tape and speeding up new oil and it was permits. that has got to be part of the all-of-the-above plan. but i want to work with congress to encourage natural gas to burn even cleaner and protect our air and water. much of our new found energy is drawn from land, waters, that we, the public, own together. so tonight i propose that we use our oil and gas revenues to fund an energy security trust to shift our cars and trucks off oil for good. if a nonpartisan coalition of ceos and retired generals and admirals can get behind this idea, then so can we. let's take our advice and free our families and businesses from the painful spikes in gas prices that we put up wither for far too long. i'm issuing a new goal for america. let's cut in half the energy wasted by our homes and businesses over the next 20 years. [applause] we'll work with the states to do it. th
in china's wild west? >> jennifer: i'm jennifer granholm. tonight in the war room the government is finally taking a reading's company to court for its role in the 2008 meltdown. to which i say be thankful they're only suing you and not putting you in a locked room because of homeowners whose live you helped to destroy. >> today the u.s. government filed charges against the agencies of standard & poor's for its role in the 2008 economic cries. s & p rates investments. when they give an investment a high rating it's considered a low risk. even the most conservative investors like pension funds feel confident buying that product. well the justice department allegeses that s & p knowingly gave high rates to toxic bad mortgages that s & p knew were risky because s & p wanted more business from the banks that createed those purposefully risky bad bundles. that's right. they said the agency, they're getting paid by the very banks they're evaluating. a little conflict of credit? >> s & p misled investors including federally insureed financial institutions causing them to lose billions o
secrets and costing american companies hundreds of billions of dollars. china has denied the accusations, calling the report unprofessional and says it, too is a victim of global cyber attacks. but executives from g.e. and american superconductors are expected at the white house today to meet with attorney general eric holder and other cabinet members to talk about the white house strategy. both companies do business with china. house intelligence leaders -- house intelligence committee leaders claim the u.s. lost more than $300 billion due to trade secret cyber theft naming china in particular and calling the degree of theft unprecedented. former congressman jesse jackson jr. is in court today facing charges that he siphoned off campaign funds for personal use. his wife has a separate hearing later this afternoon facing charges she filed false tax returns for the past six years. both are expected to plead guilty but sentencing won't take place for another few weeks. he faces up to five years in prison. her maximum is three. jackson and his wife reportedly took $750,000 of campaign money
york, we have folks from korea, china serbia, romania. and that's just robert deniro's girlfriends. if you have a comment for the show tweet us at john fuglesang or use the hash tag "viewpoint." >>> now, as a deeply insecure comedian, there is, of course, a special place in my heart for anyone who walks around a city constantly asks people how am i doing? edward koch passed away friday at the age of 88. while there were many questions about his stance on some issues as well as his lack of a stance on others, there is no doubt they've transformed the city during his time as mayor. when he took office in '78, the city was on the brink of bankruptcy. outlook was bleak. over a decade later, when he left, the city was a brighter place for some people. one of the many dignitaries to attend his funeral was of course former president bill clinton who had this to say about the late mayor. >> i don't think i ever debated discussed, discussed agreed with anybody in this line of work who had a better feel for the impact of what people in government did on the real lives of people. >> john: for
. like nixon went to china obama's got to go after entitlements. i don't think that's the word i use. i talk medicare, medicaid, social security. >> bill: earned benefits. >> it is earned benefits. investments and insurance. social insurance. but their view is if you do it their way, if you go after -- you go after -- you raise the retirement age for social security or medicare, you cut benefits. you shift costs on to seniors. then the republicans will go along. we had an election and president obama's inaugural speech was about what the country voted for. he won by -- he wanted a state by ohio to win. that's not insignificant. he won an electoral college landslide. the republicans are saying do you it our way then we'll work with you. no. we need to compromise to be sure. the fundamental things, you grow the economy from the middle class outward. that has to be part of his theme. i think it will be tonight. i think he will continue moving that direction. >> senator sherrod brown from ohio. our guest in studio. rare that you get a chance toes the question to a united states senator. her
, it would create jobs. caller: listen, i just came back from the senate foreign affairs committee from china and taiwan and when you just look at the high speed trains they have and whole network they have compared to what we have here, it is antiquated. we just redid a railroad system, how many jobs that would create and bring us back to the state we are truly behind many countries and technological advances because of that, because we're not investing in it. stephanie: right as the president said, you frame it in jobs, how many companies said they would come here. >> absolutely. stephanie: if we had the infrastructure. caller: i just in the that the president was as you said, looking toward the future, he's leading and i think that the polls show it. over 55% of americans agree with what the president talked about and we've just got to keep pressing the issue and shooting for those goals. i believe that we'll accomplish them in the long run. may not be in his term, however i also think that there's a possibility that americans will see what's happening and hopefully in two years, if they c
. >> caller: yes, at the rate of growth that some countries like china and brazil are growing with the rate of carbon they put into, there's nothing we can do. i'm not making the case that we should don't anything, but we have to realize that there are articles coming out of china where they are walking around with breathing canisters because of how bad their air is. we need to reduce the amount of carbon, but it is going to raise the rate of energy of how much we have to pay for on everything in this country tremendously and even though the job rate is 7, 8%, people are not making as much money and everything is growing in price, and this energy goes along with that as well, it is only going to add to the pressures we all face so there needs to be a push for cheaper energy. >> stephanie: i agree. >> and solar and winds are part of that. and it is not sunnier in germany than it is here. >> stephanie: that was the latest thing we learned from fox news. >> even in cloudy germany, they are getting a lot of bang for their buck. they have ordinary roof tiles all out there ger
